Abstract

AIM OF THE STUDY: 1. To evaluate patients presenting with a breast lump and to evaluate them with clinical examination ,cytology and with MRI and interpret its findings- with regards to involvement of the opposite breast and axilla and level of infiltration and the sensitivity of the modality itself. 2. To establish that MRI breast can be made as a routine investigating modality in the management of breast cancer by comparing it with mammogram. 3. To use MRI in detecting local site recurrences in patients with post MRM status presenting with pain /ulcers/nodules. 4. In this sample size of patients ,the p value did not turn out significant (0.94143) and hence the comparison was not statistically significant. However, recent studies conducted in a larger population have shown that MRI has a better tumour predictability by terms of sensitivity when compared to a mammogram.hence MRI scanning of the breast can be included in both screening and diagnosis for breast cancer in institutions where available, as it has various advantages over a mammogram like less radiation exposure, use in younger age group, ability to add on level of infiltration and involvement of opposite breast and axilla. this one modality can guide the surgeon in deciding the treatment option in patients presenting afresh and post surgical patients.
